      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Donations

279 posts in this topic

After six years of self-funding the site, we've taken the decision to open it up to donations from members to help with the massively increased costs that were accompanied by the recent move of server to a more powerful, more professional one.

If you enjoy your visits to Britmodeller, and want to show your appreciation as well as keep us going in some small way, just click on the Paypal donate button you'll find on the homepage, and on the forum main page. Every little helps toward the upkeep of the site, and as a thank you, we've created a new member category called "Gold Member", which gives you some additional abilities and resources that members don't usually get.

You get:

  • A shiny gold name, which as everyone knows is priceless
  • An expanded mailbox with space for 500 messages
  • Search flood control is removed (2 seconds for members)
  • Posting flood control is removed (100 seconds for members)
  • You can open and close your own topics

In addition, you also get the undying respect from us, as well as some kudos from the other members because you did your bit for Britmodeller. We were going to remove the bad word filter from you, but as this is a family-conscious forum, we baulked at that one :frantic:

Our man Dave (Shar2) is managing the process and documenting it all, so if you have any queries or would like to let him know you've made a donation, just drop him a PM with your name, your Britmodeller Display Name, and the email address you used to make the donation. He'll sort out your gold badge ;)

"Goldmember", eh? I'll gladly swap all those privileges for a nice E-Type, even if it is red-white-and-blue.

Donation on its way.

You can set up a direct debit, or the PayPal Page will take your credit or debit card details without the need to register

Thanks to everyone that's chipped in so far - it really is quite touching (said without any sarcasm at all) to see that people do value Britmodeller ^_^ We'll catch up with the Golding (must not get that mixed up with gelding :analintruder: ) later, as we can't be at the keyboard all the time, but if you haven't been gelded oops! Golded by tomorrow, it's possible we've not been able to tie up your donation with your user name, so drop us a PM with real name, display name and email used to donate, and we'll sort it out :)
